I've got an SSD drive and obviously storage space is premium. I've got the Lenovo recovery DVDs. Is there any way to reinstall everying and prevent it from installing the recovery partition? Or is it better to delete the partition after Windows installation?

If you are not going to use hibernation on your ThinkPad, you can disable the creation of the hibernation file (filename: HIBERFIL.SYS). The operating system creates a hibernation file that is the same size as the amount of RAM in the computer, so not using this feature will give you some space back on the disk.
To do so, open an elevated Command Prompt (filename: CMD.EXE)and issue a "powercfg.exe /h off" command.
